Limerick Charity Cup final arranged for Friday, November 17th

By Aidan Corr
THE annual rugby decider has had its staging problems at the Markets Field so the organisers will be hoping that the final of the Limerick Charity Cup goes off without a hitch at the Markets Field on Friday, November 17. It kicks off at 7.30pm
The match will have a few ‘firsts’ attached to it. Garryowen FC, from their foundation until their relocation to Dooradoyle in the late 1950s, had long connections to the ground. It is their first return to since their departure and Nenagh Ormond, who have had a great season to date, make their first appearance in a Sporting Limerick Charity Cup Final this year. There is great anticipation in both clubs and the wider Rugby family about this game.
Welcoming the event, North Munster Rugby Chairman Ger Malone said that it was timely and fitting that the game would return to a “venue so steeped in Munster Rugby history”.
LEDP (Limerick Enterprise Development Partnership), the Markets Field stadium owners see the event as being a further step in the recognition of the venue as a multi-sport facility for the people of Limerick. Sporting Limerick are also proud to be associated with this initiative.
A bumper crowd is expected for this historic night which will benefit local charities, including St. Vincents Lisnagry, Parkinson’s Association, Redemptorist Fathers’ Christmas Poor Campaign, Limerick Marine Search and Rescue and Milford Hospice.
This should be a great sporting occasion and also supporting Local Charities.
Sporting Limerick Charity Cup Final: Garryowen v Nenagh Ormond, Friday, November 17 @7.30pm, Markets Field.
